Developed by Catellus Development, the building stands adjacent to new University of California San Francisco facilities. Kosan, a Hayward, Calif.-based biotech firm that is alternately considering remaining in Hayward, has nearly 100 employees and a cancer compound in early clinical trials. Construction on the Mission Bay facility will begin in July 2002 if the lease is signed.
